    hi
    I have a soft floor in my CI 656 and need to have the floor injected from the outside/underneath.

    could anyone recommend a mobile fitter/ workshop within 50 miles of cambridge that could carry out the work at a reasonable cost

    If you inject it in from above don't do what I did.
    I didn't put enough weight on the floor after injecting it you need to put paving slabs on the area my floor kept swelling after I fitted the laminate in my swift I ended up cutting a square out of the floor with the vibrating saw then fitted king span in with silicone then re fitted the laminate floor never had a problem then hope this helps somebody.

    Need soft floor repair in Cambridgeshire area

    Hi bubble63
    I have recently,successfully,fixed soft floor on my M.H.I did the job From above,to do it from below IMHO would be a complete no no.Why must you do it from below?My autotrail had a fully carpeted floor with furniture fitted on top,I removed carpet from all of the central area, did repair and got self adhesive vynil planks from B&Q and the jobs fantastic,just need some loose rugs now.
    Hope this helps.

    thanks for the input so far:thumb:

    i have fitted vinyl , and loose carpets, but my vinyl seems to be attached , its the floor that getting spongy in the high tread area near the galley / bathroom

    i have read of injection from below leaving the flooring intact. i guess you inject 'rods' of resin to sure up the floor

    the installer drills a matrix of holes, injects and fixes the floor, just need a contractor to do it!

    anymore suggestions :Smile:

    You are still not addressing what made it spongy in the first place :Eeek: Are you sure you don't have a small weeping leak from either bathroom or sink area? Simply walking on the floor will not weaken it you have a underlying problem --If you are sure nothings amiss can you add some 3/4 ply from underneath (glued and screwed)? thus strengthening the floor in that area

    Hi
    I assume the floor is softening because it is in a high foot fall area and we are all large adults present

    The floor is - top ply -70 mm polystyrene- ply

    I assume the polystyrene is compressing slightly due to heavy traffic
    Hence resin vertical injections will stabilise the sandwich

    Hence injections from underneath and a request for a recommended fitter

    I think some people may have de lamination, I don't think I have that , the floor is slightly compressing and I am keen to fix it early

    I have read of others having this done, but I need a recommend

    Sorry for the confusion but I don't think I have a leak, just Italian engineering

    :)

    Just to brighten up the thread I was at my local engineers the other week and the young guy was getting a right earful from the boss
    I asked what he had done wrong and was told he was was sorting a delaminated floor in a MH and drilled RIGHT THROUGH the floor then tried to inject the hardener which ran out underneath
    Boss not a happy bunny !!!
